Save Threatened Freshwater Wildlife From Extinction

Target: Greg Sheehan, Acting Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Protect threatened freshwater life by adding it to the federal list of endangered species.

The Trump Administration has refused to protect a threatened freshwater species from extinction. The Kenk’s amphipod, a freshwater crustacean species only found in and around the Washington, D.C. area, was denied a move to be added to the endangered species list.

The amphipod was proposed to be added to the list by the Obama Administration. Public comments were in full support of protecting the species, as were scientific peer reviews, yet the Trump Administration disagreed and ignored scientific input. Pollution has damaged the springs this species calls home. It must be protected.

Sign the petition and demand that the Trump Administration alter its decision and instead protect the Kenk’s amphipod. Any species, regardless of its size, must be protected from extinction.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Sheehan,

The Kenk’s amphipod, a freshwater crustacean only found in the springs in and around Washington, D.C., is now facing extinction because the Trump Administration refused to add it to the endangered species list. Pollution is destroying the amphipod’s habitat. If protective measures aren’t taken, it will die.

Every species, regardless of its size, should be protected from death. They should be allowed to thrive and live. Scientists fully support adding the amphipod to the list, as does the public. Please alter your most recent decision and side with science instead. Protect the Kenk’s amphipod from certain extinction.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
